It's such an exciting day for me as I'm joining the TESC Sketch Crew this week for sketch #157. It's SO fun to receive an e mail saying that you've won a sketch challenge, and since I love my Taylored Expressions stamps, the one I received from Taylor telling me I'd won Top Chef honors for TESC155 is extra special.
I left home a week ago Thursday, as I've been working in Northern California. That meant I had to pack some of my supplies and stamps so I could put together my card on the road. It's kind of "interesting" not having all one's supplies at hand, but I managed to bring what I needed for this card, even though I had no idea what the sketch would look like.
All of the papers, the tag, the ribbon and the blue paper flower are from the TE April Key Ingredients kit. My princess is colored with Copics and part of her dress is paper pieced. (Bodice and insert of skirt) After coloring her crown and slippers, I coated them with a layer of Star Dust Stickles. (All princesses should have sparkly crowns.) After coloring, she was fussy cut and popped up on the dies with dimensionals.
I stamped the her castle on the PP, very lightly, before adding the sketch elements over it. I like how it adds to the theme of the card. For the finishing touches, I added blue rhinestones to the hearts on the TE die and added some stitching around the edges. The sentiment is stamped on a kraft tag from the KI kit and one of the paper Pretties flowers was added with a dimensional.
And, for the inside of my card;
